A loan of $550 helped to buy fertilizer and other supplies for her farming business.

Patricia Del Socorro's story

Sra. Patricia M., 32, lives in the town of Nindiri with her partner, a worker, with whom she shares the family's expenses. They have two children, both still in elementary school. Sra. Patricia wants to improve the lives of her family and, among other plans, wants to build a better, more solid house. She has made her living from farming for twelve years. Her biggest challenge is a lack of water. She is applying for a loan now so that she can buy supplies for her next crop: wooden posts, fertilizers and the other supplies that she needs to prepare her farm for the next planting.
